I was floating around Pinterest this morning and stumbled upon this AMAZEBALLS house, and must show it to y’all. First of all, it’s a New Hampshire farm house, which makes me adore it already, but it’s exactly how I would modernize an old house around here. I’m dying.
The exterior looks just like the outside of the Fireman’s parents house, right down to the lack of shutters and small side porch. It’s one of my favorite looks, especially when the trees are starting to green up again.
The typical farmhouse here usually opens right into the kitchen area, with either a tiny mudroom or none at all, and I love how they created a little tiny place for coats (and the ubiquitous rifle, of course).
This kitchen. Seriously. It’s so modern yet so rustic at the same time!
Yeah. And this. I can’t even begin to describe how much I’m obsessed with this whole open layout. I’d LOVE to cook in here!
The pantry is even more fabulous! I love the array of different colors and textures in the jars! And those pendant lights? I may need a moment.
The dining room is so lovely with the combination of modern white walls and windows with the textured old brick and the wood accents. And those beams? Come to mama.
The beams carry over into the living room, and honestly, would you think this room was in a vintage farmhouse? Because I would never be able to guess.
The juxtaposition of modern meets rustic is so seamless here, and I love it. So, so much. That headboard? Yum.
Chair rail is very popular here, but I’ve never seen it wtih one solid color (usually it’s two different colors above and below), and I love the almost board and batten treatment they have going on here.
And last, but not least, my favorite picture. This is the one that lead me to the article, and I am so head over heels for it. Maybe I’ll convince the Fireman we should paint our four poster bed too :).
